Lieff Cabraser partner Dean M. Harvey will be featured as a distinguished speaker on an Association of Business Trial Lawyers (ABTL) panel titled “Are Computers About to Eat Your Lunch (Or At Least Change the Way You Practice)?” The event will take place on August 30, 2016 at The Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco.
Panelists will discuss how artificial intelligence and technology impact the practice of law, especially with respect to document-intensive business litigation. Since computers prove to be more accurate and efficient than human reviewers when reviewing documents, this panel will cover how technology has changed the way lawyers work and what the future looks like for the legal industry in this heavily digitized world.
About the Association of Business Trial Lawyers
“Dedicated to promoting a dialogue between the California Bench and Bar on business litigation issues,” the Association of Business Trial Lawyers (ABTL) was founded in Los Angeles, California in 1973 to develop a better forum for the discussion of business trials. This included an aggressive effort to promote communication between the bench and bar. The ABTL is unique in providing a forum in which litigators and judges meet together to address issues important to business trial lawyers. Judicial participation in ABTL programs and events is very strong, in part, because the ABTL includes all business litigators, including both plaintiff-focused and defense-focused practices.
About Dean Harvey
A partner in Lieff Cabraser’s San Francisco office, Dean Harvey represents individuals and companies in antitrust, business tort, employment, and intellectual property litigation. His cases seek to remedy and prevent wrongful conduct by dominant firms. These precedent-setting lawsuits concern a wide variety of industries and markets. Remedies include reimbursing purchasers who have overpaid for price-fixed products; preventing monopolists from stifling innovation and eliminating competition; and obtaining damages for businesses, inventors, and copyright owners.
Mr. Harvey was a leader in the High-Tech Antitrust class action against Google, Apple, Intel and other tech giants for allegedly conspiring to suppress the mobility and compensation of their technical employees. This landmark case resulted in the largest recovery (by far) of any class action asserting antitrust claims in the employment context: $435 million. Mr. Harvey continues the fight to ensure that employees receive competitive compensation, currently representing a doctor in a class action alleging an unlawful no-hire agreement between the medical schools of Duke University and the University of North Carolina.
